The Great Affiliate Marketing Hoax

Hi and Welcome

My name is Jo Thomson, and I’m the owner of Marketing With Jo Thomson. I help people to grow their businesses online by teaching effective marketing strategies, providing daily tips and free content.

I decided I wanted to work for myself back in 2016 after working full-time in a job I disliked immensely. I had worked as a Legal PA for a large corporate, multi-national law firm in London, often working long hours which went largely unappreciated. Furthermore, I did not find my career fulfilling and I knew I had more talent within me to give myself a more financially rewarding and satisfying life. I also knew I had the drive and determination to help other people to succeed in starting up a business online.

I do not pretend that I am making huge amounts of money as I am only really just getting started. However, I do have considerable knowledge and expertise that I going to share with my readers and subscribers to help them launch their own online businesses and avoid the pitfalls I found myself facing when I started.

You see, when I started out looking for a way to make money online I fell into an unconscious habit of subscribing to every so-called “guru” email list. As a consequence of this, I purchased one shiny product after the next. I did spend a lot of money on products that did not help me to progress. Nevertheless, I did acquire a lot of invaluable marketing knowledge along the way. But most of the products I bought into did not complete the circle for me, so to speak. There were always gaps in the information provided, as well as some basic and necessary resources you need in order to be able to launch a business online.

As I’m sure you can imagine, perhaps even relate to, I quickly became overwhelmed with the myriad of information I had collected. I felt confused, not to mention worried about the amount of money I had spent. In short, I was not progressing simply because I convinced myself that I had to purchase the latest product release that landed in my email box. I strongly urge you not to fall into this trap.

It is simply not true that you have to keep spending money on multiple products and trainings in order to be in a position to launch your business online. What you do need, however, is a successful mentor who can guide you from the beginning and provide you with all of the training, tools, and resources you will ever need in order to succeed.

I am now able to launch an affiliate product the right way that will be profitable, whereas most affiliates make very little to no money.

It’s a known fact that it is very difficult for the average person to build a successful business online.

I found numerous reports online where research was carried out into the average cost per click in online advertising.

The figures showed that in the last 10 years, the average cost of getting someone to click an affiliate link through online advertising has multiplied by up to 8X.

One such report published by Hochman Consultants found that in 2005 the average cost per click was just $0.38, but by 2016 that same click costs $2.14!

This is it!

This is the big problem no one is talking about

If we’re paying that much more today to get traffic to affiliate offers, then the profit we can make has been reduced to a point of non-existence.

As for a lot of people whose income no longer covers their outgoings, because wages are not going up to meet the cost of living, this is the same dilemma we face as affiliate marketers with the cost of getting traffic.

The money we have to spend to get people to an offer, has reached such a high point that the sales we generate and the commissions we earn no longer covers that cost.

Think about it. If we spend $200 to get 100 visitors to click our affiliate link, and 1 or 2 of those people buy a product and we get paid $20 for each sale, we’ve made $40 but lost $160!

Heck, even if we only paid $100 for those 100 visitors and got paid $40 per sale, we’ve still lost money!

So What Is The Answer?

Well, I’d love to be able to go back to a point in time 10+ years ago when traffic was pennies a click, but I guess that’s not an option.

The only other option then is we have to make our traffic worth more to us. It must earn us more money so we can produce a profit.

Little did I know that this chance meeting would lead to the biggest realization I’d ever had about affiliate marketing and go on the change the course of my life forever.

The good news is, my business partner, Dean Holland, has been teaching me how this is done since I met him in January, 2017.

He has shared this on stages around the world, and even at a TED Talk.

I want to get the solution into the hands of as many people as possible because you can succeed, but not the way people used to.

So, the solution has been put into a new book called “The Affiliate Marketers Playbook” and I’m giving away copies for FREE.
